Oh, he’s as tedious As is a tir’d horse, a railing wife;… I have rather live With cheese and garlic in a windmill, far Than feed on cates, and have him talk to me. (Henry IV)
If you can’t stand solitude, perhaps you bore others too.
I am one of those unhappy persons who inspire bores to the highest flights of art.
A speaker who does not strike oil in ten minutes should stop boring.
A bore is a man who, when you ask him how he is, tells you.
If you knew what you were doing you’d probably be bored.
A bore is a man who when asked how he is, tells you.
I assure you it requires no small talents to be a decided bore.
Somebody’s boring me… I think it’s me.
Nature makes a fool; a bore belongs to civilization.
